Last week was an important one for the future of Michigan State basketball as coaches could begin reaching out to prospects in the 2025 class.
We heard as Tom Izzo reached out to the likes of Koa Peat, Darius Acuff, Jalen Haralson, and Cooper Flagg. The Hall of Fame head coach made his presence felt and contacted some of the best recruits in the class, highlighted by three of the top 10 in the 247Sports Composite.
But every class needs an under-the-radar recruit or two to really tie everything together.
That could very well be Jordan Scott in the 2025 class. The rising small forward from Virginia received an offer from Michigan State on Wednesday night.
The unranked forward from Virginia has been to Michigan State numerous times but he finally received an offer this week and joins an impressive offer list for Michigan State in 2025.
Scott could be one of those late-risers in the class as he’s currently not ranked on any recruiting services. He’s been gaining some steam on the recruiting trail lately with offers from the likes of Maryland, Texas A&M, Illinois, Virginia Tech, and Pitt since the calendar turned to June.
Michigan State basketball staying red-hot on the trail
It feels like the older Izzo gets, the hungrier he gets. He’s been a menace on the recruiting trail over the past year and a half and it doesn’t look like he’s showing any signs of slowing down.
After landing the No. 4 class in 2023, he’s aiming for another top-10 class in 2024, and his list of targets in 2025 is growing and getting more impressive.
Scott could be a diamond in the rough (maybe not anymore since he’s been blowing up) and he would be a nice complementary piece to guys like Acuff or Peat or Haralson in the green and white.
